Chilly for the weekend

>> Thursday, November 09, 2017

Wednesday was a very chilly, wet, raw day around the region with temperatures hovering in the 40s and drizzle at times. For our Thursday, morning rain will give way to an overcast and chilly afternoon with highs in the 48-51 degree range for most. 
A strong cold front will then move through Friday morning, and following it, the coldest air we have had since March will arrive. After Friday highs top out in the 50s, look for lows Saturday morning well down into the 20s. Sunshine will be on full display Saturday, but highs will only manage to make it into the mid and upper 40s. Another freeze is then likely Saturday night into Sunday morning. 
Temperatures will gradually creep back up to near the mid-November averages next work week. 


Coldest air since March takes hold

A strong wedge is in play around the region for our Wednesday. The result is light rain at times, clouds, and quite chilly temperatures. In fact, I expect our Wednesday highs to only be in the 40s for much of the area.

The wedge will be slow to erode Thursday, so clouds will linger even after some morning rain departs, and highs will struggle to hit 50.

An arctic cold front will then blow through the region Friday. Blustery northwest winds will kick into gear, and the coldest airmass since March will then take hold Friday night into the weekend. A widespread significant freeze is likely by Saturday morning with lows in the 20s. In spite of full sunshine Saturday, highs will only be in the 40s. 


Huge changes

A big-time weather change is underway around the region. A cold front is making its way through the Carolinas today, and as that occurs, some showers will remain possible from time to time. A few rumbles of thunder are also possible, but I do no anticipate any severe weather issues.

Temperatures will hold steady for a large portion of the day and then begin to fall later this afternoon. Overnight, a wedge will set up shop with overnight temperatures in the 40s.

A very chilly, damp day is on tap Wednesday. Look for clouds, some light rain and drizzle, and piedmont temperatures struggling to even make it out of the 40s.

Thursday and Friday will be a touch milder, but still below average, in the high temp department. But then, get ready for the coldest air thus far this season Friday night into the weekend.

I expect many lows Saturday morning to dip into the 20s in the piedmont. Saturday will feature full sun, but in spite of that, highs will struggle to hit 50 or so in many areas. Another sub-freezing morning is then on the way Sunday morning.

Bundle up!
